One of our favorite ways to decorate around the house in late Winter/early Spring is to place 3-4 long flowering branches in a tall vase. The varieties that look best are cherry, peach, and apple. Cherry blossoms are also a great decoration for the Chinese New Year. Check out our easy tissue paper cherry blossom DIY for beautiful spring decor inspiration.
